Who are Samaritan’s Purse?
Samaritan’s Purse is a non-profit, Christian organisation providing emergency relief and development assistance to suffering people around the world. Samaritan’s Purse is meeting the physical needs of victims of war, famine, natural disaster, poverty and disease with the aim of demonstrating God’s love and sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ. The aid and assistance are given without regard to the race, creed, gender, religion, or ethnicity of the beneficiaries.
What do they do?
One of Samaritan Purse’s projects is Operation Christmas Child. Samaritan’s Purse are continuing what Jesus started.
Every shoebox gift delivered by Operation Christmas Child is a tangible expression of God’s amazing love. But a shoebox is just the beginning. It also presents an opportunity in more than 100 countries for church partners to invite children into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ through The Greatest Journey.
The Greatest Journey is a 12 lesson discipleship program that helps children learn about God, faith and being a follower of Jesus Christ in their own language. When they graduate, each child is given their very own Bible in their own language.
Christian Super has been volunteering at Samaritan’s Purse to help out with Operation Christmas Child. It has been such a great experience for staff of Christian Super for the last two years. We are very excited and are looking forward to volunteering and helping them fill their shoeboxes again this year.
